Bottle at home courtesy of ales by mail, cheers Paul!
Pours dark amber with good sized dense fluffy white head and aroma of orange yoghurt plus vanilla. Well carbonated with zesty orange and a touch of corriander plus shortbread malt. Hadn’t noticed there was stuff added to this until i read the label. Nicely done. RichardGretton (4788) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2011
Bottle. Amber beer with a strongish head. The aroma is bitter, malty and roasted, and the flavour is toffee and bitter. Overall an OK bitter. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2011
Bottled. A brwon beer with no head. The aroma has boozy sweetness, brown fruits and malts. The taste is fruity and malty. Sweet brown fruits again. Quite characterful but I’d prefer more hops. johndoughty (5543) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2012
Bottle. Bronze and clear with a small head. Slightly malty with a race of fruitiness. With a bit more body this would have been a bit more impressive. SaintMatty (7526) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2012
500ml Bottle (City Pub, Göteborg) - Hazy copper in colour. Sultanas, toffee and dried fruit in the aroma. Lemon, toffee, nuts and hops in the taste. Refreshing.

Cask conditioned at The Crown & Trumpet, Broadway, Worcs. Amber to chestnut with white head. Quite a thinnish bitter on the palate, dry flowery hop character giving a hoppy bitterness, slightly peach flower in style. Surprisingly little in the way of malt note given the colour. Still very drinkable though. Idiosynkrasie (7978) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 27, 2013
500ml bottle. Clear dark copper colour with small to average, creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Caramel malty aroma, hints of red berries, a cautious piney touch. Taste is minimally dry, malty, hints of red berries, fruit parings, a cautious nuttily and toffee touch; soft carbonation. madmitch76 (25568) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2014

Chelmsford Summer Beer Fest. Cask. Almost clear amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and smooth. Fine carbonation. Toffee streaked malts. Nice light marmalade and peel hops. Trace of sweet esters. Light finish. Not bad.
500ml bottle: obtained from a Wye Vale Garden Centre and poured into an ’Old Speckled Hen’ badged pint vase on 1st Feb 2015. Good looking brew, clean and clear amber body the head being a cream coloured affair. Malts lead the way with semi-sweet toffee and caramel evident in both the aromas and taste. Hints of nuts and dark fruits in the flavour which helped to stop the sweetness running away with the brew. All in all, not bad at all.
